Cute Critturs #FolksyFriday

Blimey, these Folksy Friday`s come round faster and faster. I`m sure it`s only five minutes since the last one.
Anyway, I`m digressing already and I`ve barely started. Back on track.
Todays Folksy Friday came about because I saw a cute animal and instantly thought `cute critturs` would make a good blog. All manner of cute animals are very popular, especially sock animals.
When you see the intricacy and detail on these animals it`s hard to believe they started as a sock. Although now there are many crocheted and knitted as well as made from fabric.
I haven`t done one of these before, I don`t think, or if I have it`s been a very long time since I have. So this will make a nice change.
Yesterday I looked after my youngest grandson for a few hours but we didn`t want to go into the city. He still wanted to go on the bus so I suggested a short trip to the supermarket instead. He liked that idea. It`s easily walkable but for him, bless him, the bus is a big attraction.
We got ourselves some things for lunch and even though his Mum was home by that time he decided to have lunch at my house.
Managed to get some photos done before the sun vanished, not all, but a few is better than none.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

A patchwork quilt as far as the eye can see
as I sit and watch the countryside flee
from the window of the train
safe and snug from the sweeping rain.
A grey dull day, no sign of sun
makes the journey a bit less fun.
There`s some cows, a flock of sheep.
Those laying down, do they sleep?
Heavier rain obscuring the view
maybe now that`s my cue.
To get out pen and paper to write
all about the passing sight.
Otherwise the memory of this rhyme
will begin to fade in time.
So I`ll write it now for all to see
because my rhyming is not just for me.
I love to share what I do
especially when it`s for you.
Whatever form of my latest creation
I love to share with every nation!!

  5. Thanks for including OddSox Linda. My fave this week is that cute scruffy doggy from Hunny Bunny. I was wondering reading your rhyme, it seems to come so naturally to you - do you 'think' in rhyme? How lovely that would be. Shaz x
